sulken said: Sooo what was the unexpected betrayal Strongbow had to face? His kids moving out? A youngster (Ember) being of his opinion? He's a wuss!
Yeah! Grow a pair, Strongbow! Your grown children moving out of the house is not
a "shocking betrayal." Dart got a job and started supporting himself at thirteen (I'm guessing). How old is Chitter?

It doesn't say anywhere (that I can see) that they break from the bound with the palace... or does it?
sulken said: And all the dreams of of dreamtimes had probably some foreshadowing meaning.
I think this was confirmed at the end of Dreamtime- that all of the dreams were prescient.

I always thought Clearbrook's dream referred to her discovery of Audry in the troll-pit- during Searcher and the Sword?
